Mr. Guion

Dear Sir,

I recd. your letter, and can put up your floors in the way you mentioned in your letter for 578$ that will be with seating or benches & backs as you discribed, all fit up in good stile & painted well. You thought when I was last thare you would only have 3 seats or risers that will make the cost 70$ less. You also mentioned having nothing but the floors raised & to use chairs. The floors without seats will cost 330$. That is they must be finished in a diferant way without benches to what it would be with benches.
I think you will find it verry much more to your comfort and satisfaction with the Halls to have the floors raised & seats with comfortable backs. I will make them so as to sit verry easy, and to become in every way the rooms as to elegance and comfort more than in any way, anything if you please rather than chairs tumbling about on the rising floors the rostrum circles in front will be an extra charge of small amt.

Verry Obtly

Thos. Day
